We have had such a busy weekend, with swimming lessons on Saturday morning, followed by Christmas shopping for "The Chicken" and then working in the garden. With the week of rain we had two weeks ago, the garden has gone mad making up for all the year of drought. So a job that should have take an hour has taken us all weekend. But boy does it look good and DH is now very, very tired!
This morning we went to the markets and I bought a whole lot of toys for Aurelia. She was very happy with all the new toys and the best part it all cost me less than $10 and a little elbow grease to get them all clean. I especially love the Fisher Price barn, it's missing all the little animals, but for the price I paid, I really can't complain.
Well, I am happy to say that the main body of the Amish Quilt is finished and now only requires the finishing touches to put it on the hanger. I haven't had much of a chance to get in some sewing this week. Aurelia decided that it was a good week to be super clingy and just climb all over mum whenever possible. I love it!
My goals for this year have been a dismal failure, I am so embarrassed by what I didn't achieve, that I have removed them from my blog. Instead, I am going to get some Christmas stitching done and then start on a freebie from Blue Ribbon Designs and then I will set my goals for 2008. This time I am not going to be too ambitious and I am going to try and finish all of the goals. I also finally received my latest purchase, a chart by The Drawn Thread called "Time Flies". I love the design and the colours used in this chart. Maybe part of my 2008 goals, who knows, but I shouldn't get to carried away just yet.
Finally, thank you again to all for the lovely comments about my craft room and the answers to my question of the week, it looks like most of us spend time sewing in front of the TV. These days I really enjoy blogging and everyday I look forward to your comments on my blog. There are so many beautiful people out there doing so much beautiful work. Thanks!!
